What’s up with the blue cheese?

Not the answer I was looking for, and far better. :)

When’s the last time anybody got excited about a new phone?

You know, now that you mention it, I’ll take two.

I over tip on purpose. A dozen years in the service industry making $3.35 hr + tips, more for bartending. These people are making far below minimum wage in most states. If you want to stop tipping, then be ready to campaign for the workers, be ready to pay more for your meals, and get ready for some shitty shitty service.

Why shitty service? Because most of your good (and beyond) servers and bartenders are there in part because how much they make depends on how good they are. They have more control over what they make than anyone else on the property. Don’t underestimate that part of the equation. Once you make these positions hourly, you’ll attract hourly workers and you’ll get the same level of service you do on the phone.

So if you want tipping to go away, support your fellow wage slaves and make sure they get paid an actual living wage. $10/hr ain’t gonna make it.

I’m really glad you get that at home, it must be enjoyable.

In the late 90s we had the party house, 4 dudes, LAN cables and computers all over the place, 5 or 6 desks strewn about, and the double decker couch facing double decker TVs. It was ridiculous and glorious.

Anyone with a functional mind knows that almost every invention, every breakthrough, every discovery, will always be utilized 1st to further greed and to kill people. Many would argue one is a tool of the other and not separate.

Reassurance by anyone who says otherwise is to be suspect IMO.

It’s subpoenable information. Absolutely no one is addressing that aspect.

I’ve done quite a bit of work in IT within the sphere of investigative law enforcement and this sets off major alarm bells to me.

Insurance Companies have entered the chat

Which is why my post is worded the way it is. And the being wrong and then being a child about it when you’re called out is appalling.

Well driven by my 30 years in the industry, 25 of which I’ve been using Windows/MS software, I’m going to take that with some salt. If my laptop can’t avoid having an existential crisis when my default browser is not Edge I’m going to throw shade and cast doubt about a feature no one is asking for being foisted upon us that can have what appears to be very serious repercussions.

I’m a 50s cis swm, so this might be completely wrong. I don’t remember the 90s having so many problems with trans people as we do today. Growing up then I remember some people having issues, but for the most part, we just didn’t fucking care. Are you a cool dude? What? Sorry. Chick, are you a cool chick? And that was it .

Felons who have had their civil rights restored are allowed to vote. (edited because I was wrong)

You know what, I misread the title, you are correct and I am wrong .

nobleshift,
@nobleshift@lemmy.world avatar

That’s only true if they have not had their civil rights restored, and many do.

The very 1st thing I install post setup is Guake. It’s a Quake style drop down terminal. It’s absolutely indispensable.
